"This book examines the intense and fiercely close relationship I share with my mother. Within my eccentric upbringing, “home” was never clearly defined. Throughout my life, my mother has always been a constant—my one safe place, where I found acceptance and a sense of belonging. My mother is my “home”. This work investigates the concepts of home, motherhood and family and how the ideals of these institutions pertain to my own experiences and memories. The act of photographing my mother has become a ritual—a process of creating artwork in order to understand the emotional states of our intricate connection. Anxiety and tenderness fuse, revealing a complex relationship where boundaries and normalcy are regularly challenged. Within this process, my mother and I learn from one another and our painful history in order to rewrite our own brand of personal truth.

Visually, this work functions as evidence that begins to tell a story of a mother and daughter. Our private moments become artifacts for public viewing. The viewer bears witness to private moments between mother and daughter in which each party has assumed the role of an artist, and where the concept of home can begin to be understood."
